PEI women promote change CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) A report on the status of women in Prince Edward Island recommence sweeping changes hi laws and attitudes and establishment of a women's division of government to prepare and implement these changes The report was prepared by an eight member government appointed advisory committee headed by Jean Canfield, minister responsible for the housing authority, and concludes that discrimination against women is rampant in P.E.I. The committee says a fundamental change in attitude by men and women towards their roles hi society is needed The report also calls for a strengthened human rights code to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex and marital status It recommends the code be administered by a human rights commission with one- -Jialf its membership made up of women and with extensive powers to investigate and remedy grievances TORONTO (CP) The IODE has called in market researchers and computers to help them find ways to shape new programs and allow each chapter to tailor them to its own community. Mrs. K. J. C. Dean, the or- der's president, says they may have to jettison some projects they have carried for years and find new ways to organize their work. "The IODE has never been oriented to pilot projects, partly because we don't like to let things die when we have worked on them. But I feel we must learn to step in and do something and get out." The reshaping process be- gan with a two-day seminar with a communications coun- sellor. An executive com- mittee was set up under Mrs. K. A. McCartney to decide what to do next. They first decided the IODE needs a fresh, sharply focused national identity. They have chosen to make the Canadian family the centre of their work For 1975, when the or- ganization will be 75 years old, concern for children will be the theme. Mrs. McCartney said the or- ganization is investigating areas such as drugs and alco- holism, single parents and senior citizens as possible themes for other years. All the order's work and the work of individual chapters is being reviewed to find out what can be retained or re- shaped, what might be dropped and what new pro- grams will be created to fit under the umbrella. The committee also decided that all new programs must be tailored to each chapter. When they are set up, there will be suggestions for pro- grams based partly on the size of chapters. Mrs. McCartney explained, "If we do single parents, for instance, a chapter in a small town would probably not work with unmarried mothers. The girls tend to clear out of small towns if they are pregnant. But that chapter might be able to work with people who are divorced or widowed."

Mrs. McCartney said if they get enough replies they will feed them to a computer to be looked at in terms of geo- graphical areas and commu- nity size. "It will be tabulated to tell us, for instance, whether a small town in British Colum- bia is interested in the same things as a small town in New Brunswick." They hope to have the re- plies in, the tabulation done and some plans based on re- sults to be presented at the annual meeting in Toronto in May so there is time for changes to be in effect by 1975.
